One way to do this is to use DHTML.  Simply send a DIV tag with the information that you want to convey and after the operation is completed send JavaScript code that hides this DIV block.  While the operation is running you can even edit the contents of the DIV block to provide feedback on the operations's progress.  The following link points to an example of this technique: ProgressBarDemo.  You can download the code used to create this demo from our Web site.

I'm using a Foxweb script to retrieve some information from users. When the user clicks the submit button, the script saves the information in a table, calls to a prg file to create a little project an then build an exe file, and then sends a couple of e-mails with the exe file attached. Everything works fine but it takes some time (of course) to do the work. The question is, how can I send a "wait a minute, please, we are working" notifier to the browser while this happens, so the user won't think the system is hanged?. Probably I could force to open a new page in other little window. How can I do this, and, How can I clear it latter?
